The engine has a maximum torque output of 360Nm with a maximum torque output speed up to 1200r/min, the vehicle can handle various harsh road conditions.

And with a fuel consumption of 7.9L per 100km, the Foton Tunland stands strongly with its competitors in the same class in terms of fuel efficiency.

The Foton Tunland comes only in five-speed manual transmission.

There is also the option 4-wheel drive configuration which can ensure normal travel of the vehicle even in cases of complete single wheel or dual wheel slip. This effect is highlighted on muddy or sand-stone roads etc.
